a person to shoot another person and listen, bloomberg can do what he wants, but i side with wayne lapierre. >> he says that bloomberg is going to spend 12 million dollars. and wayne lapierre says that he's trying to buy america, what do you say? >> that's the way the political system is built. he has a lot of money and a lot of influence and the problem i have with these commercials, to charles' point he's not using facts to back up what he is pushing on the television commercials. he's injecting a lot of emotion. he's not using why are these people actually killing in the first place, he's blaming it on the guns themselves. so, are there some things that mayor bloomberg that have been done in the city that are good. yes. i don't disagree, i think they're helpful as a consumer, however, he's got the money, he's going to influence politics. charles: exact, i agree. i think he could do more-- what he does with his mayor is fine. as mayor some of the things he pushed through, you know, and i thought was ridiculous. if he wants to spend his fortune to change the way that america thinks, that's
. lois, let me start with you. i want to play what wayne lapierre played on "meet the press" in response to mayor bloomberg and his millions of dollars he is willing to put up in this battle. >> he is going to find out this is a country of the people, by the people and for the people. and he can't spend enough of his $27 billion to try to impose his will on the american public. they don't want him in their restaurants. they don't want him in their homes them don't want them telling them what food to eat. they sure don't want to say which firearms to own that and he can't buy america. >> interesting remarks for many reasons. he waves in this soda ban and some other things but basically paints bloomberg as daddy war bucks, trying to dole out his cash. we know the nra has its arsenal as well and has, too, shelled out millions of dollars in an effort. >> i think before this whole fight is over, we'll be spending hundreds of millions of dollars on this. he made a very clever point. he is trying to paint bloomberg as a guy that is just going to buy everything. but the one thing that is going o
guns. you know what's going on here. >> if wayne lapierre is the country mouse, he may be the only making money to preach the kind of stuff he preached yesterday. he tries to make this about mime bloomberg and nra. that's a waste of an important national moment when everybody in this country, nra member, gun owner, and person who has never looked at a gun in their life, aught to be having a conversation about where there is common ground. in discussing this with people out in the country since newtown and for the past five years. despite what you hear on news programs, there's actually an enormous and pretty durable consensus about what you would do if you wanted to save a lot of lives but at the same time respect the rights of law-abiding citizens. it's background checks. that's what everyone agrees on. >> i think they do. the numbers sure prove it. anyway, mayor mike bloomberg of new york argued yesterday the public is on his side when it comes to background checks in particular. polls show nine out of ten americans support the background check. lapierre chose to blame the messen
." that is kind of thing i think wayne lapierre was pushing on sunday on "meet the press." pushing the idea it's about mike bloomberg, not about your own safety from guns. >> well, a couple of things. that's all we can ask for is pryor listens to arkansans. they think every gun buyer should get a background check no matter who they buy the gun from or where they buy it. this get background checks because they buy them at licensed dealers. if you buy the gun online or buy the gun at a gun show, there's no background check. that's where the criminals and seriously mentally ill go to get their guns. all we want is to close that loophole. we think it's going to happen and think it will happen with senator pryor's support. >> what do you think of lapierre yesterday? he is trying to make it one of these country mice against the city mice. he's trying to basically say if you want to sand up against your community against the big shots from gotham, you can vote for more guns. you know what's going on here. >> if wayne lapierre is the country mouse, he may be the only making money to preach the kind of

a counterbalance to the nra i find wayne lapierre's comments just sort of bizarre. he is basically saying that the nra can do what they do. they can run ads of the they can try to persuade senators to vote a certain way but nobody else can. and i don't think running ads is imposing your will on people. i think it is running ads and letting people be informed and make a decision and being an advocate. mayor bloomberg is being an advocate for a position and there is nothing wrong with that. heather: rich, what do you think?. >> i think that is basically right. it is a free country. you can spend as much money as you want. i think the reason why you saw a such a strong reaction from wayne la pierre going to opening marks of the segment nra, would love, love, mayor bloom to be public face of gun control in america. the man associated with intruding himself into ordinary's people he is business. who wants to ban and prohibit a bunch of different things so the nra loves this fight with mayor bloomberg. heather: really what he is trying to do here is influence votes by senators prior to the deba

and legislators are now listening. >> when you look at the facts, maria, wayne lapierre is not looking at the same world. he is of the nra. he accuses mayor bloomberg of trying to buy america when it comes to gun reform. first, listen to this. >> authe can't spend enough of $27 billion to try to impose his will on the american public. he can't buy america. he's so reckless in terms of his comments on this whole gun issue. >> but the nra itself spent a ton of money trying to influence politics on gun legislation. in 2012 alone, it shelled out $32 million in political spending, maria. >> well, i mean, you hit the nail on the head. i was listening to that sound bite. i'm like, wait a second, is he against gun control? it's one of the largest lobbyists and they write hefty money to both democratic and republican congressional members. i think what the nra believe in commonsense gun reform. they believe in background checks. what's happening is that there's not an alignment of what the membership wants and what the nra is actually doing. >> the ad, since we brought that up, the ad campaign will hit 13
things like the nra wants firearms with nukes on them. it's insane. >> that's nra president, wayne lapierre appearing on nbc's meet the pres this past sunday with some sharp criticism for michael bloomberg's $12 million advertising blitz aimed to pressure vulnerable democrats and republican senators to vote for background checks when it comes up for a vote next month. joining me is senator richard blumenthal. let's talk first, can you give me a state of play, we kind of know the elements of the bill, that will be debated. can you give me a state of plan where you think things stand? >> where things stand is that the majority leader, harry reid, has commendably said we will have a vote, a ban on illegal trafficking and straw purchasing, very significant. a requirement for background checks on all purchases of firearms, including private sales. and a school safety measure. all of them approved by the judiciary committee where i serve and there will be at least two amendments, maybe more, one offered by senator feinstein that will oppose the assault weapon ban and a prohibition on high-capacit
is that people keep demonizing the nra and wayne lapierre and i'll be the first to admit that wayne lapierre post-sandy hook speech was a rhetorical train wreck. but the fact of the matter is the nra is representing a lot of people very interested in this issue and again if there was such a ground roots swell for this, i don't think bloomberg would even be worried about running these ads. >> i just wanted to bring this up because it was so bizarre that jim carrey put out this gun control kind of ad and you have to kind of watch it because i can't blaine it, but it's very offensive. let's watch a bit of it. ♪ on the ones who sell the guns, he'd sick the vultures and coyotes ♪ ♪ only the devil's true devotees could profiteer from pain and fear ♪ >> okay. i know it's from funny or die, but it's making the rounds online. does this sort of thing really help the cause, jason? >> i think it does. because it brings a different and you had general audience. funny or die uses these celebrities for all sorts of different issue. but i think it's valuable because people will pay attention. people who
